Gardaí renew appeal for information on 2008 murder

Gardaí in Dublin are renewing their appeal for information on a murder seven years ago.

21-year-old Gavin McCarthy was shot dead on Sunday the 19th of October 2008 outside a fast food outlet on Lower Sherriff Street.

Kerry Graye reports: On the evening of Sunday, 19th of October 2008 at just before 9pm, Gavin was in the company of his brother, Daniel, and others standing outside a fast food outlet on Lower Sheriff Street.

He was approached by a male on a bicycle, who fired a handgun from close range into Gavin's face and upper body.

This man then fled the scene between the Sheriff Football Club and the artificial football pitch beside it, onto Commons Street, turning left in the direction of North Wall Quay and the IFSC.

Investigating Gardaí believe people living within the North Wall Community are in possession of specific information in relation to this murder, which would help to move the inquiry forward.

In particular they are appealing to anyone who might not have been in a position to come forward at the time, because of relationships or associations.

Anyone with information should contact Store Street Garda Station on 01 666 8000 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.
